Abstract

Optical parametric amplification in the normal dispersion regime was analyzed using a range of photonic crystal fibers (PCF) with varying zero group velocity dispersion (GVD) points. It was demonstrated that the PCFs can be used as efficient parametric frequency generators, and in principle a PCF based fiber optic parametric oscillator could generate a tunable all solid state source spanning the entire visible spectrum. The experiments showed that a pump laser with very limited tunability could be expected to generate widely tunable coherent radiation in the visible. The results of a calculation of the phase matching wavelengths assuming that the fiber is a single strand of silica with an adjustable diameter were shown.
